  1. OP says the ball was left in the glove. I can't imagine that he'd somehow trap it, then in the process of flipping the glove over as he took his hand out scooped it up. I guess it's possible, but I doubt that's what happened.
  2. Why was this not a catch? Did it bounce? Otherwise I don't see how the ball could stay in the glove if he didn't have control at one point.

    FED DH Rule Change

    Using this logic, why couldn't you CR for the P/DH? While yes, they may be playing as the DH now, they are still the pitcher of record, thus should be eligible to be courtesy ran for. The intent and the writing of the courtesy runner rule doesn't seem to have with this interp handed down from on high.

    FED DH Rule Change

    As a catcher (who can get his gear on reasonably quickly, but also happens too be fairly slow on the bases), I agree. I don't hold up the game by being on the bases when the third out is recorded. Generally, the pitcher will have only thrown one, maybe two, warmups by the time I'm ready to take over for whoever goes out to warm them up. Sometimes, I'm ready before the pitcher! (But that's just because I play on a bad team that don't know the game). Though, strategically, I can't really fault my coaches on putting a CR in... I really do need to work on some speed.

    FED DH Rule Change

    I know you're no longer in the committee, but I'd assume you're still a little more hooked into the situation than the rest of us, so I've got to ask, do you think the posted interp is what NFHS wants? (I.e, no courtesy for F/DH?)
  6. Hopefully full. It's a beautiful planet!
  7. If the scored runner was continuing his normal running of the bases, and this wasn't intentional, I probably have nothing. If it was intentional or his actions were not part of running the bases, I have interference, call the BR out.
  8. Huh, hadn't considered the Karate Kid angle. @The Man in Blue what's the answer??
  9. For the uninitiated, the title is a reference to a song called Mask Off by Future. At least, I assume that's the reference. You may not want to play it over the air at work or with family.
  10. The sunglasses thing came up at the Mid America camp. One instructor (if you work college baseball, you know of this person) went off on a bit of a tangent about taking sunglasses off when talking to coaches. After he left, another one of the instructors (who was a little newer to the scene, but still working very high level D1) said that that was a little old school, and that newer school umpires have stopped the practice when not working with older school umpires. I for one think it kind of tacky to take sunglasses in and off each time you talk to a coach, but that's just my opinion.

    MiLB Shake UP

    Unless something big happens, high schools won't go to three man. Not (only) because the added cost, but also because of the shortage. Some places they don't even have two!

    MiLB Shake UP

    The biggest implication this would have would be the schools going to three man. Once College gets to three man across the board, you'd really be SOL for good two man training.
  13. Agree with everything.... Except that it's like rec ball. With the exception of the very, very, very worst travel teams, they're much better than rec teams (but that doesn't mean they're good. Just that they can reasonably play catch). I'd rather do an 11u travelball game than a 14u rec game. Parents are the same if not slightly better in travel ball. Not that that is much of an endorsement.
  14. After a couple games, I don't notice it anymore. My biggest complaint is that it's solid metal, and so, the few times I look at it, it blinds me.
  15. In my area, there's never a scorer provided. It's always the book (actually, it's almost always GC, almost never a book) of each team, with the home book being official if a dispute arises. Would be great if they'd provide one, but no such luck.
